    So.. are you saying that even as deceased, Biden is better than Trump ?

    You might be right.

    Still: You shouldn't use Trump as a benchmark for quality, which seems to be a common mistake here.

    Not at all, it just seems you got used to the Trump era when everyday bought some new facepalming WTF moment.
    Now it's back to normal except for all the republican shenanigans.
    IE de Santis, the Californian governor recall election etc.

    It is amazing that the Washington Times would think Biden is pathetic. What's next? Fox news entertainment network would think that the Democrats are not good for the country?

    President Joe Biden: Wealthy should pay their fair share in taxes


    Bank Tax Reporting Is a Critical Component of Biden’s Build Back Better Agenda

    The United States will lose an estimated $7 trillion over the next decade from people and corporations not paying the taxes they owe. That is twice the $3.5 trillion of investments that Congress is now considering in the budget reconciliation bill.
    Keep your friends close and your enemies closer.

    Read this klongdick and do try to pay attention. Read it slowly, maybe two or three times.

    Mic drop: Republican senator’s claim of button to silence Biden draws chuckles


    James Risch questioned the secretary of state about an official supposedly able to mute the president – ‘Who is that person?’

    The US secretary of state, Antony Blinken, fought back laughter on Capitol Hill on Tuesday as the Republican senator James Risch relentlessly questioned him about a rumor that someone on the White House staff “pushes the button and cuts [Joe Biden] off mid-sentence” with a wireless device.


    “Somebody in the White House has authority to press the button and cut off the president’s speaking ability and sound. Who is that person?” asked Risch, who was also former lieutenant governor of Idaho.
    In video of the testimony, Blinken tries to restrain his amusement as Risch repeatedly asks him different iterations of the same question during a hearing that was meant to focus on the US withdrawal from Afghanistan.


    “Anyone who knows the president, including members of the committee knows that he speaks very clearly and very deliberately for himself,” Blinken said. “No one else does.”
    “Are you saying that there’s no one in the White House that can cut him off?” Risch asked again. “It’s been widely reported that somebody has the ability to push the button and cut off his sound and stop him from speaking,” Risch persisted. “Who is that person?”
    “There is no such person,” Blinken said in response with a chuckle. “Again, the president speaks for himself, makes all of the strategic decisions informed by the best advice that he can get from the people around.”
    If that weren’t enough, Risch asked the question again, and Blinken repeated his answer.
    The notion that Biden is being controlled by someone behind the scene originated from a tweet by RNC Research, an official affiliate of the Republican National Committee that claims it is “exposing the lies, hypocrisy and failed far-left policies of Joe Biden”.
    The tweet included a video clip from a meeting where Biden was briefed by federal and state fire agency officials about the wildfires in the west.


    Biden responds to comments from George Geissler, a state forester representing the National Association of State Foresters at the briefing.
    “Can I ask you a question?” Biden asks Geissler. “One of the things that I’ve been working on with some others is …” and the feed cuts off.
    The , which is available on the White House’s official YouTube channel, ends after Biden asks “Can I ask you a question?”
    While the RNC tweet was based on Monday’s wildfire event, rightwingers have been harping on for months about the possibility that the White House is “blocking Biden from being heard by the general public”, as they cherrypick instances where a live feed was interrupted.
    CNN’s Chris Cuomo debunked the conspiracy and demonstrated that it was “the mic falling off”, which he said was planned.
    “The press pool following Biden comes in briefly for pictures, then they’re ushered out. This happens all the time,” he said. “Standard operating procedure. But the right has been building this lie for months. They’d rather it be something more.”
    Once the press’ window to photograph and record the meeting was over, they would be ushered out, and that is when the feed cut off, according to another media report.

    Biden goes after top 1 percent in defending tax hikes

    President Biden on Thursday went after big corporations and wealthy Americans while promoting his economic agenda that congressional Democrats are working to get across the finish line.

    “Let me ask you this, where is it written in that all the tax breaks in the American tax code go to corporations and the very top? I think it’s enough, I’m tired of it,” he said in remarks at the White House on the economy.

    The president reiterated his calls for big corporations and the wealthy to pay their fair share in taxes, saying it's “long overdue.”

    “I’m not out to punish anyone, I’m a capitalist. If you can make a million or a billion dollars, that’s great. God bless you. All I’m asking is you pay your fair share, pay your fair share, just like middle class folks do,” he said.

    Biden promotion of his Build Back Better agenda comes as Democrats are focused on passing the $3.5 trillion spending package without Republicans through budget reconciliation, along with the Senate-passed bipartisan infrastructure bill.

    “How’s it possible that the wealthiest billionaires in the country can entirely escape paying income taxes on what they make?” Biden said. “For a long time, this economy has worked great for those at the very top. Ordinary, hardworking Americans, the people who built this country, have been basically cut out of the deal.”

    Elon Musk mocks President Biden after SpaceX completes first all-civilian mission

    After SpaceX completed a historic, private spaceflight on Saturday, CEO Elon Musk took a pot shot at President Joe Biden who had yet to remark on the company’s and the civilian flight crew’s accomplishments.


    One of Musk’s 60 million followers on the social networking platform Twitter asked him, “The President of the United States has refused to even acknowledge the 4 newest American astronauts who helped raise hundreds of millions of dollars for St. Jude. What’s your theory on why that is?”

    Musk replied, “He’s still sleeping.”

    During his 2020 campaign, former President Donald Trump frequently insulted then-candidate Biden by calling him “Sleepy Joe.”

    Now that was a massive crap pile of attempted distortion by you just swept up and binned. Feel free to move along, lemming.

    Should Biden consider a tax hike on petrol (gas) as part of the plan to repay the debt.

    Relative to many Western countries, the US petrol tax is comparatively low.

    No gas tax is regressive and hurts the working class more than it hurts the wealthy. The taxes need to focus on the top 1% and to be more specific the top .01%.

    Maybe, but so are all the other taxes Americans pay. A gas tax increase would be a major political issue that would hurt Biden's reelection campaign. Not a good idea.
